Subject[lock validator] net/ipv4/fib_hash.c: illegal {enabled-softirqs} -> {used-in-softirq} usage?
the lock validator i'm working on found another item:

[ BUG: illegal lock usage! ]
illegal {enabled-softirqs} -> {used-in-softirq} usage.
hackbench/8407 [HC0[0]:SC1[2]:HE1:SE0] takes:
{&state[i].lock} [<c0bf7d08>] wrandom_flush+0x2a/0xb3
{enabled-softirqs} state was registered at:
[<c0befc33>] fn_hash_insert+0x565/0x5c3
hardirqs last enabled at: [<c0d29a36>] _spin_unlock_irq+0xd/0x10
softirqs last enabled at: [<c012d0a0>] irq_exit+0x36/0x38

other info that might help us debug this:
locks held by hackbench/8407: <none>

[<c0102c25>] syscall_call+0x7/0xb

the culprit seems to be:

(gdb) list *0xc0befc33
0xc0befc33 is in fn_hash_insert (net/ipv4/fib_hash.c:527).
522 list_add_tail(&new_fa->fa_list,
523 (fa ? &fa->fa_list : &f->fn_alias));
524 fib_hash_genid++;
525 write_unlock_bh(&fib_hash_lock);
527 if (new_f)
528 fz->fz_nent++;
529 rt_cache_flush(-1);
531 rtmsg_fib(RTM_NEWROUTE, key, new_fa, z, tb->tb_id, n, req);

which enabled softirqs with {&state[i].lock} still held. If the
rt_secret_rebuild() would hit that codepath at that point then it could
cause a deadlock, right?
